Isn’t the main crux of Superman that he isn’t 100% sure that he’s going to be morally right all the time, and the fact that he can impose his absolute will on anybody means that he probably shouldn’t? A lot of people believe that laws that are just are unjust, and Superman doesn’t want to be on the wrong end of that stick, which is why he follows the human laws of the time.

Hey, way to miss my point, Peyton, which was if MGK hadn’t intitially framed this post as an attack, which he didn’t need to do, maybe the majority of the repsonses would be so defensive.

I know this is coming late to the party, but regarding the theory that the best Superman stories are dark….

ALL-STAR SUPERMAN. Full stop.

A story that deals with tragedy and loss, and has the main character confronting his own mortality, and STILL has an optimistic tone to it.

Hell, I don’t think he’s depicted in shadow at any time during the entire series. But EVERY pic of Superman coming out of this movie is dark, dingy, and “realistic”.

I’d rather have this:

Or this:
